I hope this'll convince me to finally upgrade from Snow Leopard!

What's the version number on the nvidia kexts in 10.8? Wondering how/if they work in Lion.

Even better if someone could zip them up and post somewhere.

Will this version have out of the box support for some AMD processors? Since Apple once said they wanted to use AMD cpus for their products at some time.

Apple is not Microsoft.
In any case no, it is a new operating system.

Having been a member of this forum for almost 6 years nothing surprises me any longer.
I have read countless posts which sounded like a joke but were not.

in a certain sense I hope mountain lion will be the lion sp1, in the same sense snow leopard was the leopard sp1 (and IMHO Snow Leopard is the best OSX so far).

Certainly, for an output per year, we can't speak about an OS, but more than a SP ! ;)

But

Apple is not Microsoft.
In any case no, it is a new operating system.

in my opion apple had to diverge the attention from Windows 8 + Metro to OSX + iOS tweaks. On the other hand the time interval between two following releases of OSX has always been between 200/300 days on average (Leopard and Snow Leopard are exceptions).

The first OS X, Cheetah 10.0 was released On March 24, 2001.
Lion was released on July 20, 2011. Thus we have 8 releases in 10 years, an average of just over a year per release.
Mountain Lion is scheduled to be released in late summer 2012, one year after Lion.
Thus yes, the time span is a bit shorter than average, but not that much.
Personal opinion. I find the OS X release schedule about right.
Operating systems should be released once a year. Many Linux distributions are released twice a year.
Of course with Microsoft it is an entirely different story.

That's true ! Linux releases come out every 6 months (Ubuntu), I think that under these conditions, it isn't easy to come up with something new and stable!

I think two years is more than enough to release a new and stable OS, and that wouldn't be too lag behind in relation with the new technologies!

but I think we're a little off topic, right? :lol:

What was the question ? :D

I wasn't that off-topic, I mainly explained how things work with the OS X release schedule and why Mountain Lion is not that different in comparison to previous releases :)
